Better months, since you asked, are below. This is of course one man's opinion, but, I don't really see the relevance of asking what a better month is, as if I have to prove my choices are better. May 77 is probably the most overrated month in their careers.
2/68,10/68,9/72 (though also suffers from setlist complacency), 2/73, 11/73, 6/74, 11/79, 5/81, 10/81, 10/83, 11/85, 10/89, 3/90, 7/90, 6/91
As you can see, I don't hold May 77 in nearly as high a position as you do. I realize this is personal preference, but the point remains, we can easily un-argue May 77 from "best month ever".

Just listing months is not an argument. Tell me why you think they are better. For example, I would love to know why you think Feb '68 is better. I love the shows (or bits of shows) I have heard from that month but they only did 8 shows (according to setlists) and music is available from only 5. Not much of a sample to compare to some of these others. So what in that 5 shows rocks your world?

Of course it's all opinion but you will never convince people that your opinion is relevant if all you do is dismiss theirs and offer nothing in return or worse call them close-minded yet offer nothing to open their minds.

Yeah, I just don't really care enough to elaborate here. People like what they like, and a paragraph or two from me isn't going to change their habits. There is no convincing someone to like what I like via posting threads.
I do not feel the need to follow some kind of arbitrary rules or standards to validate my posts.

I understand what you are saying, but my goal is different.

My point was, again, to just show that May 77 is really not as good as some people make it out to be. That it is, in fact, the most overrated month. My list was merely to show possible contenders as being so numerous. If May 77 is the best to you, fine, but when you offer up that is argueably the best month of 30 years, expect to take a little criticism.

Cliff, once again you prove to be the ultimate asshole on the board. As if there was ever any doubt.
Yes, I made a mistake on a post once regarding a keyboardist. Sorry. I guess you were too dumb to realize that I already apologized for a typo. Get over it jerk. You keep living on this one mistake. If that's the best you got, you ain't got much. Oh crap, I just made another mistake, Cliff, "ain't" isn't a word. Run, tell the President.
And, for the record, Cliff, that Top 50 was not MY creation alone. That was voted on by something like 50 people... Sorry to disappoint you.

I'm sorry but Dire and I have tried again and again to share ownership of the ultimate asshole award and quite honestly Cliff doesn't hold a candle to either one of us. On the other hand, a new candidate has emerged...

Koch, how delightful that you finally got around to checking out 2/18/71.

I've got to say Im really enlightened by your official top fifty list! Pretty gutsy move to include all those 90's shows and real treasures like 3/27/88 and 6/30/85 but not shows like 11/8/69, 12/30/69, 2/13-14/70, 9/19-20/70, 6/24/70, 11/8/70, 4/28/71, 9/27/72 etc, etc...

Keep up the good work Koch!

By the way, I enjoy it more when you diss the LMA forum at the Lost Assholes Pub, than when you directly attack people here...

Well, Cliff does not approve of the Top 50 list compiled from many people's choices. Better take it down.
For someone who hates www.lostsailorpub.forumup.it so much, you sure do spend a lot of time reading our threads.

Anyhow, to go back to what we were saying before cliffsucker jumped in...

Elbow, I agree with you 100% that there were a series of peaks in the mountain range. I don't have one that surpasses the others clearly.
